The Parelli Rope Halter is a core tool of the Parelli program, and it is hand-tied using smooth yachting braid with simple knots that strategically balance on the horse’s head. Its lightness means that it is easy for your horse to carry around, but thin enough that the horse can feel the communication.
- 1/4 inch yachting braid, simple knots under the chin and on sides, non-fray ends, loop attachment.
- The 100% polyester rope used at Parelli has been specifically engineered with horsemanship use in mind. Parelli rope is dirt, sweat, mildew, rot and UV resistant. This means that your rope will stay truer to its original form longer, without fading, stretching, popping or elongating. The rope you usually see used for halters and leads is typically nylon yachting rope and was never designed to withstand the unique challenges an equine application presents. Nylon rope stretches, can become stiff with use, increases in size over time and absorbs unwanted moisture.
- No metal, even to finish the halter; the ends are melted.
- Leather poppers on each product with Parelli stamp. Designed so when you drop them on the ground they no longer look like a halter, they collapse into a pile of rope. What makes this unique and functional is that because our halter folds upon itself when dropped it prevents a horse from catching a foot in it or otherwise becoming tangled.
